VIDEO: Kinect hack #27 - Minority Report style Windows 7

Kinect hacks are turning up quicker than English wickets on a supposedly batting-friendly pitch.

And whilst we've seen some pretty cool shenanigans, with both digital puppetry and Star Wars action included, we've yet to see anything as useful as this Minority Style manipulation of Windows 7.

Titled the DepthJS, it was conjured up by the chaps at the MIT Media Lab Fluid Interfaces Group. It is a Javascript based execution that hooks up to the motion sensor hardware inside the Kinect, and lets you do all your usual desktop based activities such as web browsing, word processing and photo viewing.

It seems to work pretty fluidly and, with the open source community all going Kinect-hack crazy, and Microsoft seemingly not giving a damn, we're hoping for some seriously innovative hacks in the near future.
